I agree with the NY Times?

I don't know when this last happened, but today's editorial is calling for a tougher anti-drugs program in baseball. They want an Olympics style program (unannounced tests, stiffer sentences). Of course, even the Olympics testing program doesn't actually work. I think it's time for one sport to step up and announce that all its athletes will be blood-tested once, twice, three or 4 times a season – whatever it takes. Italian soccer is close; I'd love to imagine baseball jumping on this bandwagon.

I wonder what the Times thinks about drug testing employees in any other line of work?
